    Can you believe what a cheap bastard the Warriors owner, Joe Lacob is turning out to be? Let Durant walk.
    Gave up a draft pick to get rid of 2015 finals MVP Igoudala. Cut/ threw away Livingston to avoid the apron. Warriors were just one torn achilles away from a championship last year, yet Lacob (Break up the band Yoko) won't even give them another crack at it. Guess he never heard of #RunItBack!

    Hard cap smard cap, just an excuse to save money, What a panty waist! Why couldn't he be an owner like James Dolan. Now there is an owner who is not afraid to cross the tax penalty line. Incurred hundreds of millions in tax penalty during the Isiah Thompson era. And for such a crappy team! Paid tax year after year for a last place team that was the joke of the league and didn't complain once. Now that is an owner every fan should want!

    WTF are you talking about? They offered Durant the full max, They traded Iggy so they could give more money to Russell.

    Bad thread man; really bad.

    Hey Tilman, you cheapskate

    Warriors and Jacob have won like 3 titles in the past 5 years. They have earned the right to do whatever they want

    Meanwhile your cheap ass is collecting nickels and dimes to pay the $25k fine and not wanting to pay the luxury tax

    SHUT UP AND LISTEN - you ain't winning **** being so cheap

    BTW - if you're not fully invested in winning, better sell the team to an owner who has money $$$

    While you're out the door, take away your Tilman only fans and fake Rockets fans like @tinman and @Rasheed with you

    Questionable idea, questionable execution.

    I'm sick of the "owner is cheap" people and anyone who starts the owernship-comparison conversations.

    There's a random trades thread to argue about scrubs we need to sign or trade Clint Capela for.

    This is no burner account. Pat's been a member since 2002. Tilman and Pat are long-time Rockets fans. Don't mean they are not cheap, though.

    Lord, I can't wait for even preseason to start.

    A lot of these poor threads stem from us having very little Rockets-wise to talk about. Can't wait to see if these new additions will mesh, how Russ will actually fit in with James, can House find his stroke again, etc...

    But we won't get answers till they start playing. Then we'll have something to talk about.

    (Players Only getting cancelled is awesome though. Do y'all think it's the sort of thing that could play better on something like HBO, where the commentators could be a little more raw and uncensored?)

    the worriers, perhaps through amazing luck with timing, actually played the repeater tax as perfectly as possible and should have been the template for bitchass tilman. they got the most out of katie's prime and won rings while paying lux tax, and will now take a year out of lux tax to avoid the repeater, and likely return to paying next year. tilman is avoiding the tax during his star's prime out of (alleged) fear for the repeater several years down the road. that people here would actually side with such inane illogical stupidity is puzzling

    These ridiculously stupid posts have to be coming from Tilman’s relatives right?

    What actual fan of the team would be rooting for cheapness...

    Let Durant walk.”

    Just soak in how stupid that is.
